Additionally, a common die marker for this VAM is a "Thread-Like" impression on the lower cap, above the hair ribbon.

Note: MDS Specimen with no threadlike impression on cap...unverified could be worn off
Clashed n and Clashed t, bow crack, chip on obverse between P and L all to minor to list and clashed transfer is a matter opinion
